Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.-Psalm 55:22 NIV
It’s time to let it go. No, you are not perfect. You said some things you shouldn’t have said. You made some mistakes and took some wrong turns. It’s now time to let it go. No longer wallow in self-pity, guilt and shame. Crying over spilled milk does not aid in cleaning it up. It only prolongs the mess.
That is exactly what we do when we continue to roll the thoughts of our failures, abuse, and hardships around and around in our minds. Anxiety begins to creep in. It’s time to let it go. Forgive your- self. Free yourself from the weight of perfection.
Free yourself from the unforgiveness you have held onto for all these years. God wants to bring resolution and peace but how long will you continue enabling the pain? How long will you continue holding on to the shame?
When will you realize that you can walk in freedom from your past? The signs you see today are only symptoms of a greater pain. You never took time to confront the real issue. When you refuse to nurse it any longer you will realize the prison doors are open and freedom is available to you.
- Ask God to reveal to you what areas of pain and heartache you need to address at this time.
- Pray that the Holy Spirit would help you to let it go so you can more one.
